6 Reasons to Take Advantage of Our FREE Roof Inspections

Your roof often goes unnoticed but it is one of the most important parts of your home. Your roof protects your entire home from the outdoor elements - keeping your family safe and dry. It's a good idea to get your roof inspected at least once a year and especially after a big storm with high winds and heavy rain.

The 411 on Hail Damage on Your Roof

Image
Missouri hail storms are extremely common in the Spring and in the Summer. Thunderstorms are on the rise as we get further into Spring which means the likelihood of having a hail storm goes up. Have you ever wondered how hail forms and the damage it could do to your roof? Read on to learn from our expert Lake of the Ozarks Roofers


What are Hail Stones?
Hailstones form when tiny particles are swept up high into a storm system by an updraft. Water vapor condenses on the particles and then when it gets to a certain height, it freezes. These small hailstones can be lifted into the storm system multiple times, therefore increasing in size before finally falling out. Hailstones can fall for one of two reasons; either a downdraft sends them falling to the ground or the hail becomes too large for the updraft to overcome the force of gravity. Hailstones can be any size from tiny pebbles or dime-sized to a golf ball- or even baseball-sized.

How Do Strong Winds Damage My Roof?

Strong winds can wreak havoc on your roof and it's important to always check your roof for damage after a storm occurs. Today, our roofing company at the Lake of the Ozarks has a few things for you to consider after a bad storm!


How Does Wind Affect My Roof? High winds typically don't affect your roof evenly. Generally, you will see damage at the edge of your roof because wind pressure is much stronger on the perimeter of your roof.

If you notice that your roof is missing any shingles don't wait to call your trusted roofing company at the Lake of the Ozarks because leaving your roof exposed to the elements can cause serious damage to the interior of your home.
